Neo Geometric Hard Edge Minimalism
My current work is fueled by the Concrete, Geometric Abstraction, Hard Edge and Minimalist Schools. I am a highly intuitive artist who favors straight lines, the grid and flat areas of color. I have two ongoing series, the Concrete Compositions and Signals Series. On occasion I divert from these series when I get an idea or set up different parameters for a painting. These works may look different from my regular work, but upon close inspection you will see some of the same characteristics of my other works.
Working with a mixture of acrylic paint, matte medium and gesso on canvas or paper, giving my work a matte flat finish similar to gouache paint and creating the great depth of color that I prefer. I hope that when a viewer sees my work they will get a feeling of simplicity, harmony, order and rhythm.
Having gestated and remixed the above abstract styles, my intention is to force a new dialogue inherent to abstraction that started in the early 1900's and continues to be relevant to this day.
My work is in many private collections in the U.S. from coast to coast and Europe.
